abstract

  • The current novel report of significant upper gastrointestinal bleeding from a malignant gastric ulcer at the PEG insertion site, that required blood transfusions, extends the clinicoendoscopic spectrum of peristomal metastases after PEG. Peristomal ulcers occurring in this circumstance should be biopsied at an initial or follow-up EGD, despite the recent gastrointestinal bleeding, to exclude malignancy.
